WARHORSE (As Heaven Turns To Ash) 2LP

Jan/22/2016

At the time when 'As Heaven Turns To Ash' has been originally released (whichwas in 2001), Southern Lord Recordings was one of my favourite record labels. The reason for this is simple: Greg Anderson had shown a lot of good taste in choosing bands for his label...

WATERWAYS / SONS OF ALPHA CENTAURI / HOTEL WRECKING CITY TRADERS (s/t) Split 12"

Jun/24/2013

This colourful platter has been released by the Australian label Bro Fidelity Records and it features three bands from three continents. I think this sounds pretty good, because it will offer the interested listener a good possibility to explore unknown acts a little more closely...

WO FAT (The Black Code) LP/CD

Oct/19/2012

WO FAT IS back in order to show the world how to create a massive wall of blues-tinged metallic fuzz. Each muscular riff drops like a bomb while the sonic wave pours over the listener like molten lava...

WOLFSHEAD (Promo 2012) CD

Oct/18/2012

Wolfshead is a new band from Finland, but features veterans of the heavy scene in the grim North: Guitarist Ari Rajaniemi from Deliverance as well as Fall Of The Idols bassist Vesa Karppinen. Completed by singer Tero Laine and Jussi Risto on drums, the four-piece finally releases their first CD...

WIGHT (Through The Woods Into Deep Water) 2LP/CD

Sep/20/2012

After the successful release of the debut album 'Wight Weedy Wight' (review here), Germany's WIGHT come up with their second full-length 'Through The Woods Into Deep Water' in 2012. In contrast to the debut, WIGHT moved away from the lysergic heaviness in favour of a more classic heavy rock sound...

WITCHSORROW (God Curse Us) 2LP/CD

Aug/09/2012

Rise Above Records brings us the second album of Witchsorrow. Absolutely fitting, if we consider that both the label and the band coming from England...

WIZARDS OF KAOS (s/t) CD

Aug/06/2012

Due to the fact that I have a great liking for sHeavy, I was very interested in the first self-titled album of WIZARDS OF KAOS, because that is the new band of original sHeavy guitarist Dan Moore who left his former group in 2009. Unfortunately I missed the debut EP 'New World Mistress', but this album compensates for some of the things I have to do without...

WHIRR (Pipe Dreams) LP/CD

Jul/28/2012

After the live recorded 'Distressed' EP and the single 'June' in 2011, California´s Whirr now released their first full-length with 'Pipe Dreams'. Like the previous releases, their music is a noisy Shoegaze/Post-Rock bastard that often is represented by a constant buzzing...

WINO & CONNY OCHS (Heavy Kingdom) LP/CD

Feb/09/2012

I enjoyed Conny Ochs' debut 'Raw Love Songs', which has been released in 2011 and I love Scott 'Wino' Weinrich's acoustic record 'Adrift'. Hence so much greater my pleasure when Exile On Mainstream Records announced to release an acoustic collaboration between both musicians...

WIGHT (Wight Weedy Wight) LP/CD

Jul/25/2011

Because of the cover artwork, it's obvious that Germany's WIGHT make no secret of the fact that they have a fondness for the heavy groups of the 1970's. In doing this, it seems as if these three guys were particularly attracted to early Black Sabbath but also bands as, for example, Cactus and Sir Lord Baltimore have unfold their impact; there I am quite sure...
